An historic six-bedroom country house boutique hotel, nestled deep within the Carmarthenshire Countryside, has been put up for sale through specialist business property adviser Christie & Co.
The Grade II listed Tŷ Mawr Country House in Brechfa, near Carmarthen, dates back to the 17th century and is set within an acre of landscaped grounds with the River Marlais as its backdrop.
It features six individually styled guest rooms across three floors, along with a cosy reception and bar area, a guest lounge and highly regarded restaurant.
The attractive gardens surrounding the house also feature a relaxing summer house for guests and the recently constructed owners’ accommodation, a new lodge detached from the main house that comprises a king sized en-suite bedroom, fitted kitchen and wood burner.
The hotel may be nestled in a quiet and idyllic village setting, but it’s close to both Llandeilo and Carmarthen, making it a great base to explore local attractions such as National Botanical Gardens, National Trust Dinefwr Park and Aberglasney Gardens.
The business has been trading since the 1970’s and has built an enviable reputation as a haven of peace and a perfect place to stay to explore Wales and enjoy great food and drink. There is significant demand to further increase trade by offering Sunday Lunch/ weekday lunches, afternoon tea and increase capacity in the restaurant.
The current owners, Paul Bennet and Mel Hurley who currently own the property comment: “We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here at Tŷ Mawr and have been delighted with the level of generous support we have had from the local community, our team and partners who have helped us make Tŷ Mawr the place it is today. It has been an honour to be the custodians of this most historic house and business but now we are now looking to take a step back to enjoy a well-earned retirement and to support and spend time with our family.
“We sincerely hope that we can find the right buyer to build on the solid foundations we have built and further develop the business, whilst enjoying an enviable lifestyle in the ancient Cothi Valley of Carmarthenshire.”
Richard Thomas, Senior Broker in Christie & Co’s Hotels team is handling the sale and adds: “Tŷ Mawr is a unique property that hits the sweet spot between successful business and ideal lifestyle – a charming historic country manor house, with an enviable reputation for fantastic food and drink as well as offering comfortable accommodation.
“The business is very popular with guests locally throughout Wales and the rest of the UK, looking to enjoy the peace, quiet and idyllic setting on offer. Demand for lifestyle businesses is high, with buyers increasingly looking at a more rural settings to take advantage of the current rise in demand for staycations so we anticipate a great deal of interest for the property.”
